IAC are exclusively recruiting a Financial Controls Manager for a market leading FTSE 250 travel and leisure business. 

The Financial Controls Manager position is newly created following a restructure across the Group Finance function. The Financial Controls Manager will report to the Head of Financial Controls, and ultimately the Group Financial Controller. The business has invested heavily in transforming its Finance team and this position will help with the continuing development of the function. 

The Financial Controls Manager is responsible for assisting the business in managing and strengthening internal controls, to help ensure the integrity of its financial reporting and information. You will spend a large proportion of your time working with key finance stakeholders in order to build an in-depth knowledge of key transactions, finance processes and associated risks and uses that to identify value-add activities for the Financial Controls function. The Financial Controls Manager is also expected to analyse current controls and ensure they are fit for purpose. Where they are not you will be expected to make recommendations to Senior Management on the strengthening of controls. 

The successful candidate is expected to be fully qualified (ACA/ACCA or equivalent) and likely to have trained or currently working with one of the Big 4 accountancy firms. You will have significant internal controls experience gained within an External/Internal Audit or SOX environment. You will be a confident communicator and able to foster strong working relationships.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a fast-paced organisation that continues to perform well despite a challenging external landscape. The successful candidate can expect to progress within the wider organisation after 2-3 years, either within Finance or the wider business. 

The role requires you to travel between 20% and 30% of the time across the UK.
